Abstract:

Annotation.

The whole nation was excited, last spring, at the revelations made before the President and the Cabinet at Washington, by the survivors of General Mitchel's secret Railroad Expedition, sent into the heart of the Confederacy almost a year before. Of the twenty-two daring adventurers who took their lives in their hands and penetrated the enemy's country, eight were executed, and the others, after suffering untold hardships, finally succeeded in recrossing the lines and reaching their regiments in the Union army. They each received a medal of honor from the hands of the President.
